Zephyr - Alpaca/Seacell/Silk
Zephyr is as subtle as the breeze it's named after. A soft, greeny grey it has complex notes of lavender and lilac. The alpaca softens the colours and the silk intensifies them making for wonderful depth of colour.
60% alpaca/20% seacell/20% tussah silk.
This blend of fibres is a super soft and fluffy mix of alpaca, silk and seacell, which is great for those fibre lovers who are allergic to wool.
Seacell is derived from sustainably sourced seaweed, and is purported to have beneficial qualities for the skin by way of transfer of nutrients. It's soft, silky and a delight to spin.
Alpaca fibre is hollow, which makes it light and extremely warm. It has no elasticity, and so unlike wool will not spring back into shape after washing, making it perfect for drapey, flowing garments such as shawls and scarves. The addition of silk adds strength and sheen to this lovely blend.
